JOSH Duggar will be left out of the jail’s Christmas festivities, as he sits alone in his cell eating following his child pornography conviction, The Sun can exclusively report.
The disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star will be served his holiday meal in his cell in solitary confinement, according to a source at the Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas.
On the menu for the special meal? The source said: “It's going to be turkey and gravy, candied carrots, mashed potatoes, a roll with margarine and a spice cake. The beverage will be a fortified drink mix."
The jail won’t be serving special meals for breakfast or lunch on December 25.
The insider also claimed there’s no special Christmas decor, however with Josh in solitary, it’s unlikely he’d be able to see them to enjoy them, anyway.
Another jail source recently told The Sun that despite the holiday, Josh will be feasting solo.
The insider said: “People in solitary do not get to eat with others.
"They get served alone in their cell, but they get the same food everyone else does.”

Previously, The Sun revealed the ex TV star is being held in solitary confinement for his own safety as he awaits sentencing on child pornography charges.
A jail source claimed: "Josh is cordoned off from the general population.
"He is in a holding cell by himself. We do this for every sex offender.
"We are holding him separately for his own safety."
When asked if it's lonely for him to be by himself in the cell all day, the insider added: "It is what it is."
After the fallen reality star’s conviction earlier this month, the Arkansas federal judge overseeing the case warned that Josh’s sentencing date could be four months away.
Josh is expected to be held at the Washington County Correctional Facility until the hearing.
HISTORY OF ‘INMATE SEX ASSAULTS’
As the Sun previously revealed, the jail is notorious for inmate-on-inmate alleged sex assaults and violent attacks.
In one instance at the Washington County facility, a male inmate was allegedly raped and tortured for 16 hours.
In court documents obtained by The Sun, two men from Josh's jail were charged with the alleged rape and torture of a man in a cell at the jail in 2013.
The jail Josh, 33, will call home for the next several months was sued in the past for allegedly allowing similar assaults, according to a report by Arkansas Online.
In one instance, a jury in 1996 ordered Washington County to pay $52,504 to a 15-year-old boy who was tortured and sexually assaulted when he was held in the old Washington County Jail’s drunk tank with other youths, according to the report.
STRAIGHT TO JAIL
After he was found guilty in an explosive trial, Josh was immediately booked into the Washington County Detention Center.
Josh was arrested and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography in April 2021. .
He is now likely to get 10 years in prison, an attorney told The Sun.
Judge Timothy L Brooks said that he plans to sentence the disgraced star in four months.
He added: "Mr Duggar 100 percent has been compliant awaiting trial.
"I appreciate that and I wanted to acknowledge that however because of the guilty offenses he must be detained regardless of flight risk so there will be a mandatory detention."
Attorney Abtin Mehdizadegan told The Sun: "He is looking at spending five years minimally in prison.
"He took us to a full trial. So I would expect that he'll probably get 10 years."
Though he didn’t cry after hearing the result, Josh was “teary-eyed” and “solemn," according to The Sun's reporter at the scene.
He stopped to tell his wife Anna that he “loved” her on his way out.
Family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar worked to console his son's wife Anna, despite her appearing “stoic” through it all.
The guilty verdict is the culmination of a nearly two-week trial that saw graphic and disturbing details and testimony.
Among the most shocking revelations was the testimony from Josh's ex-girlfriend's mother, Bobye Holt, who broke down in tears and claimed in court that he once confessed to molesting a 5-year-old girl when he was a teen.
In 2015, a police report was published that revealed his dad, Jim Bob, confessed to local authorities in 2006 that Josh inappropriately touched several young girls while they were asleep years prior.
The state used the molestation allegations at trial, as it showed his alleged “sexual interest in young girls.”
Josh's legal team fought against it, as they claimed it's “extremely and unfairly prejudicial.”
A judge sided with the prosecution and allowed the testimony.
